Turkish, Palestinian presidents speak over phone

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan extends support to Palestine in wake of US’ so-called Middle East peace plan

News Service AA

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday held a phone conversation with his Palestinian counterpart Mahmoud Abbas, according to the Turkish communications directorate.

Erdogan and Abbas talked about the latest developments and regional issues.

The Turkish president reiterated his country’s support to Palestine in the wake of U.S. President Donald Trump’s so-called Middle East peace plan.

On Tuesday, U.S. President Donald Trump released his plan to end the Israeli-Palestinian dispute at the White House alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, with no Palestinian officials present.

During the event, Trump referred to Jerusalem as "Israel's undivided capital."

The so-called peace plan unilaterally annuls previous UN resolutions on the Palestinian issue and suggests giving Israel almost everything they have been demanding.
